Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the Third Annual WHO/Cochrane/Cornell University Summer Institute for Systematic Reviews in Nutrition for Global Policy Making, which will be held on the Cornell University campus from July 25-August 5, 2016. We are currently accepting applications to the program, and welcome all inquiries. Please visit our website at http://who-cochrane-cornell-summer-institute.nutrition.cornell.edu for further details.

This unique institute on the Cornell University campus brings together experts from the World Health Organization (WHO), Cochrane, Cornell University to train participants in the development of systematic reviews of nutrition interventions in populations. Systematic reviews following the Cochrane methodology are used to ensure that WHO recommendations are based on sound evidence. Participants will learn to apply the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) tool to assess the overall quality of evidence.

The institute is intended for nutrition scientists and practitioners with interest in the application of scientific evidence in policy making. Candidates must have a university degree in health or social sciences with interest in nutrition interventions for public health and be willing to be registered as authors in a Cochrane Group.

We look forward to a stimulating and productive two-week institute. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions.

Best wishes,

Patrick J Stover, PhD
Professor & Director

Patricia A. Cassano, MPH, PhD
Professor & Associate Director
